While they work diligently on the follow-up to their last album, 14 kt God, the kids of Portland’s caustic-pop outfit Panther will give away a free cover MP3 every month on their blog for the next two years. To kick off the hit parade, the band will offer a unique cover of the Bee Gees classic “To Love Somebody,” followed by a random assortment of singles that might include throwbacks from Black Flag, Sonny Sharrock, or The Replacements–stay tuned to find out who makes the cut.

Panther will also play a few shows next month at home before heading over to Europe in March.
